Vice Versa

Yeah, nice day to start a writing again. Pretty boring actually. Mengantuk, letih, but I still have the desire to write something. I wonder why...

Have you ever had a personal conflict where decision is very hard?

Are going to follow your rational mind or to follow your emotions?

What did you ended up choosing?

I say, males will have the tendency to chose a more rational decision, unlike female, they will tend to choose the other one.

Now, now, I know if you are a girl, you might be cursing me right now. Sexist la SyaukaT!! ==

Do not feel like that. Because in fact, I am complimenting girls!


You may disagree with me, the decisions that we make in our life may not be rational at all. But we do not regret it.

Yeah sometimes, we do not have to be rational to choose something. Sometimes we will just follow our heart hoping it will determine whether it is right.

To me, that emotions are what makes us human.

Too much rationality to me, is like a robot where everything is calculated according to percentage of chances and probability. To me, that is bullshit.

So generally, males are robotic in their thinking.

Which is why, males need females to be on their side. Because naturally, males and females complement each other.

Nice to know you. =)


Couldn't find the Red Riding Hood anymore. Maybe she's lost in the woods. ==


2nd week as a medical student has been going fairly well for me. I hope this goes on for a while.

Okay, on the last week's entry you guys have probably read about a friend of mine who asked something about my religion. This week it happened again. This time, its an australian lecturer who asked.

Her name is Dr Deborah Zion. As you can tell by her name, She's a Jew.

Oh no, don't get me wrong. She smiles a lot. She's really nice, friendly and talkative. =)
So we were discussing about alcohol ethics and she asked a question which is
"Do any one of you come from a family who do not consume alcohol at all?"

And then there a few of my colleagues who raised their hand which of course, including me.

Dr: Sorry, are you a muslim?

Me: Yes.

Dr: So can you tell us about the reasons why muslims are prohibited to consume alcohol?

To be honest, I was struck by her question. I knew it would come to this situation because I'm the only muslim in my group.

So at that time, suddenly all my friends suddenly place their hands under their chin signifying their eagerness to listen. =="

With a pump of anxiety, I mustered my courage and carefully answered the "killer question"; keeping myself calm at the same time.

Me: Well, it is taught by prophet Muhammad that liquor is prohibited. The Arabs used to drink a lot those days. When the revelation came, suddenly all of them stopped drinking..........

And I goes on talking about the punishment of hellfire and that sort of stuff. And how Allah prohibit any sort of action which is detrimental to our physical and mental health.

So guys, it is not my intention to brag, but alhamdulillah, I found myself able to explain to them fairly in a smooth way.

The moral of the story,

1) Make yourself fluent enough to talk in English because you do not expect them to ask you this sort of question in you mother tongue (unless English is your mother tongue)

2) I remembered ustazah Noorhazlina (my LAN islamic studies teacher) warned me about this. So she said that it is really important for us to know Islamic terms in English. Now I can see why.

Oh and to Mr Easy, I am rationing your cigarette! chaiyok bro! =D


Psst... Hey there.. Yah you la! ==

I'm here, tak boleh cakap kuat2. Because I'm currently using the Histology room's computer. Believe it or not I'm using it for facebooking and blogging right now. Haha.

Now is week two for my venture as a medic student. The orientation was cool. Really cool!! I mean it.

One day there is this one friend of mine asked me a question.

JC: Dude, are you a muslim?

Me: Yes I am. =)

JC: Are you a type of modern muslim who does not pray five times? 0.o

Me: Err..~

To be honest, I was kinda offended by his question. The fact that my face touch the ground five times a day makes me not modern?

But then I tried to get hold of myself and started to think.

I cannot blame him at all. Really. It is our fault entirely!
We are the ones who makes them have that idea of stereotyping muslims. Because most of them see that successful muslims do not pray five times maybe?

I smiled at him and said,

Me: I am a muslim, and I pray five times. The fact that I'm here doesn't mean that I am a caveman is it? =)

JC: Of course not, sorry I dunno much about you guys.

Me: Relax dude, it happens all the time. =)
